Changes be afoot!
The fish has nothing to do with the contents of this post.
Right lads, here’s the skinny of it!
Made two changes directly to the blog. New background, new avatar. Also, changes are coming in how regularly I try to post. Tales of Adventure will be reset back to blank and will be chronicling the adventures of a rowdy band of heroes in an upcoming Pathfinder game I’ll be detailing shortly.
New stuff is exciting sometimes!
Also, for reference, the background is set to 1920 x 1600 so if you don’t see all of it, that’s why :)
I laughed so hard at this. Deadpool is insane.

… Free to a good home, two cats. I need to make room for Margay.

I’m invincible. I haven’t died once.
I found this on Deviant Art and thought it was funny. According to the author, use Courier New font and blur the text until indistinguishable from the rest of the form.
When we get bored on STO…
On Star Trek Online, I’m a fleet resources officer for Serenity’s Grasp. Boring job really, sorting through items left by helpful fleet officers. I had the entire deposits tab cleaned out… and was bored. Also, tribbles are cheap. The results speak for themselves.
Of course, then Isambard decided to take the black tribbles and spell out TRIB in Braille…
Right proper bastards, we are. Of course, then Rein went OCD on them…
Then we decided to start spelling…
All this while pissing off other members of the fleet :P
Review: Mystery Science Theater 3000
Mystery Science Theater was one of those shows that I saw as a kid, but never really appreciated until much, much later. The premise is simple as it is brilliant: take old movies and make fun of them on TV. Most of the films they got were old and, thankfully, horrible enough to easily make fun of. It was a better time because movies are taken so seriously by some people and it’s fun to poke fun at them.
Because MST3k ran for so long, it’s hard to nail down exactly when it hit its going stride, but I’d have to say it was definitely not season one, and probably doesn’t include Joel. The early production work during season one was atrocious, especially with Servo’s voice being provided by Josh Weinstein. There’s just something about the voice I can’t enjoy. Joel was just a bit too… bland. I’m sorry Joel and Josh :( Anyway, I will say that there wasn’t really much of a difference, that I can tell, in Crow following the Giant Gilla Monster skit, because it was after that when Trace Beaulieu got swapped out for Bill Corbett.
Each person played a multitude of roles, the aforementioned Josh Weinstein playing Dr. Forrester’s (played by Trace Beaulieu) bumbling sidekick before he left the show. Kevin Murphy, who voiced Servo after Josh left, played Professor Bobo as well, and Mary Jo Pehl played the magic voice before taking on the role of Pearl Forrester. The show always felt like it was on a shoe-string budget, but it never took itself seriously enough for anyone to really care. I think that really helps because without that, the show would’ve probably been a flop.
Anyway, if you have Netflix, there are episodes on DVD and Instant, so go see what it’s all about, and don’t forget to check out Joel Hodgeson’s Cinematic Titanic or Mike Nelson’s Rifftrax. Both are awesome stuff.
